Fun J.Crew Prints
For years J.Crew and Lands End have been my go to shops for preppy staples. One of the things that I appreciate J.Crew for, which Lands End has always been shy about, is a touch of quirk. Sometimes you may find the one token cute item like the sailboat skirt I bought a couple of years ago, but for the most part they barely dip a tow into the whimsy pond. I understand that they are there to supply the basics and I do appreciate the fact that they offer a variety of colors, including pink.
I have found that consignment shops are the best place to find the treasures of stores past. Last year I was fortunate to find this cute J.Crew skirt for under $20.
Tee shirt: Isaac Mizrahi Essentials Crew Neck Tee in Coral Rouge at QVC. I prefer XS instead of XXS.
Necklace: Old Isaac Mizrahi candy style
Skirt: Old J.Crew
Shoes: Old Talbots leather Espadrilles. This years Talbots Espadrille is the Palma Cotton Canvas Flat.
